I see what you mean.

It's very nice how the figure works into and out of the picture frame. Dang! Y'can almost feel the glide path she's on....

Zeppellina said...

Might not put the demon in after all...still thinking about it, Boneman.
She`s meant to be being pulled into the dark `doorway`....but that idea began to change when I couldn`t decide on what my demon should look like..
The figure is trying to brace herself against the doorway to prevent her from being pulled into the `dark side` through the gateway.

A friend who saw the original drawing, as I am working on it, thought the figure looked as if she was ski-ing....

Damn.

Perhaps some changes required....

kindurco said...

Maybe you should try and put a kind of maelstrom n the opening behind her - you know like looking down into a tornado funnel or a whirlpool - but all dark and threatening!!

Zeppellina said...

That was one of the original ideas, Kindurs, and still a strong chance!

The drawing is still pinned on the wall so it can bother me each time I pass by it!

Dark and threatening would certainly be appropriate.
But, it will have to wait now until I have time to come to a decision...
oh...just too many problems to solve...

Always appreciate your input, Kindurs!

Zeppellina said...

Hey Kindurs.......

Meant to say thank you for doing a bit of posing for photos last night...

That will help me solve a couple of the problems with the drawing..

Many, many, thanks!!

Y'know, one of the best "scary" things in the whole world is dark undefined masses.
If'n ya don't believe me, go watch Jaws again and note that the shark doesn't come out for near three quarters of the show.
Even more scary, Fallen, with John Goodman and Denzel Washington. I don't think they ever did show the "bad guy" but that din't make it any less powerful.
But, in any case, I also know that the worse thing to do is bug an artist while they think about what the presentation will be. Or for "dart throwers" like me to suggest this that or thother.

Whatever ya pick, I'll betcha it'll be cool.
And, as for me, I'm gonna go "peek" at the red laces, again.

Know exactly what you mean, Boneman, the fear is in not knowing, and the horror is in the darkness.
I remember the first time I saw
`The Hitcher`, with Rutker Hauer.
you couldn`t see the gore, but you knew it was there, and your imagination filled in the gaps.
The horror was in not being able to visually estimate the threat.
The unknown quantity, and yes, a fear of shadows.
Don`t worry guys, I`ll get this one finished yet.

I love the surreal tone to your drawings...Moreover, it is usually the case that you incorporate opposites in your work as well.


Hope you are well, Zepp!

Zeppellina said...

Hi Barbara, really good to see you!!

Yes, I am well, but I have a few problems on the go at the moment, a bit tricky to resolve...seems to be coming out into the drawings too...!!

Yes, you`re right, there are a lot of opposites incorporated into my work, and it`s my need to visualise the opposing forces and tensions which are causing me a little bit of hesitation on this drawing.

So good to hear from you, Barbara!

boneman said...

I actually didn't remember which one Primavera was, but, found it and posted it on m'blog.
I figure I'm the guy in red at the left of the picture.

'Course, after the last couple few comments I made at other blogs, I may be the mud under everybody's feet....
But, let's hope fer the best, eh?

boneman said...

Well, yer a brave gal, I'll say that fer ya.
Still, I cried reading yer e-mail.

Dang it! Disney cartoons said that being an artist was so successful of an endeavor that we could walk around in our underwear till the afternoon, swim for a while in our swimming pools, and go out dancing and dining and drinking till the cows come home.
Now I find I gotta be dressed really fast, feed the critters before they revolt, do the chores till sundown, and pray for food on the table for dinner.

What the hey!

boneman said...

So, this has been taking a piece of time, ain't it?
And while I can appreciate yer advice on not doing m'paintings so fast, take some time and all that, I gotta be honest with ya and say, start a new one if'n ya got stuck.

'Course I know the move has been the focus, but, c'mon. Give us color or give us the new one,....

what was it? Oh yeah!
A male and female door decorator piece fer the lou.
wasn't it?

boneman said...

OK, so, the site's got the grad pix on it, but, just in case ya need a lil giggle, I found these.
This is a joke.....NOT advice.!

1. If you are choking on an ice cube, don't panic.Simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throat, and presto! The blockage will be almost instantly removed.

2. Clumsy? Avoid cutting yourself while slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while you chop away

3. Avoid arguments with the Mr. about putting the toilet seat back down by simply using the sink.

4. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a ;few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins. Remember to use a timer.

5. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.

6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives, then you will be afraid to cough.

(my favorite was #5)
(and I altered #3....)

boneman said...

OK, movin or no, this is just taking too long t'finish.
Since ya obviously have concerns fer which way t'go, then the answer is simple, really.
Do both ways.
(I remember ya tellin' me 'bout taking yer time t'do a thing right, but...)
Do both versions as fast as possible! Don't even spend more'n a half day on each.
Just do, put aside and do again.

Next thing ya know, we'll be looking at the finished version, which, by the way, y'can spend some time on once ya KNOW where yer going.

C'mon.

boneman said...

Thought since ya wandered over t'say hi that maybe this here was done....

Then again, you do realize that the longer ya wait, the harder it will be to regain your momentum on the idea behind this...

boneman said...

OK, gal.
I don't ever tell folks what they HAVE to do, but, today, I gotta make an exception.
You read these words, then turn off yer 'puter and either finish the fallen angel or start a new piece.
You're too good t'just let things slide.
And, no sense in tellin' me anything about hard times, cause, it couldn't be worse than what's going on here!

Or, get up a new glass.
Hey! What if I told ya I have a nude picture of m'self on m'blog?
Would that get ya going any?
Huh?

boneman said...

Tried cryin', beggin', hollerin', threatnin', but still, there's his here unfinished look to the piece.

Reckon it's true.
Can't tell a woman what t'do.

boneman said...

need a joke break?

A man goes into a bar with a monkey.
He orders a drink, and while he's drinking, the monkey jumps all
around the place.
The monkey grabs some olives off the bar and eats them, then
grabs some sliced limes and eats them, then jumps onto the pool
table,grabs one of the billiard balls, sticks it in his mouth, and to
everyone's amazement, somehow swallows it whole. The bartender
screams at the guy, "Did you see what your monkeyjust did?"
The guy says "No, what?"
"He just ate the cue ball off my pool table ---- whole!"
"Yeah, that doesn't surprise me," replied the guy, "he eats
everythingin sight, the little devil. Sorry. I'll pay for the cue ball
and
stuff."
He finishes his drink, pays his bill, pays for the stuff the monkey
ate, and then leaves.
Two weeks later he's in the bar again, and has his monkey with him.
He orders a drink and the monkey starts running around the bar again.
While the man is finishing his drink, the monkey finds a
maraschino cherry on the bar. He grabs it, sticks it up his butt,
pulls it out,and eats it. Then the monkey finds a peanut, and again
sticks it up his butt, pulls it out, and eats it. The bartender is
disgusted. "Did you see what your monkey did now?" he asks. "No,
what?" replies the guy.
"Well, he stuck a maraschino cherry and a peanut up his butt, pulled
it out, and ate it!" said the bartender.
"Yeah, that doesn't surprise me," replied the guy.
"He still eats everything in sight, but ever since he had to
pass that cue ball, he measures everything first."

Hiya everyone,
Just thought I'd let everyone know that Zeppellina is OK but she just doesn't have access to a computer or to her site for a short while. However I am sure this WILL be resolved fairly soon. She has been deep in the throws of moving not only business premises but also living accomodation,getting a new flat and furnishing it from scratch, after having to give the entire flat a complete enema of a cleaning before she could move in. She was staying with friends for a while until she could move. She WILL be back soon, I know.

I like the spirit behind your drawing... Complex and bewitching...

pack of dawgs said...

having no computer at home...
Yup, been there, done that, still at it, fer sure yer not alone.
But since it's a fair amount of time, and if'n y'need a giggle.
Y'all can come by here, we won't be snarlin, but t'gettin attention we're wigglin.

boneman said...

AHA!
You live!

And, perhaps you are right about the pussy, eh?
'Spose ya noticed that
somehow got poetry under m'hat
and I'm still rhyming some, even today.

It's fun, as I see.
so if it pleases me
I think I'll ride it a lil while longer still.
However, if it bothers you
tell me, I'll see what I can do,
but I heard poets get laid more often than I will...

(if I stop.)

Zeppellina said...

Ho Ho...!!!

Methinks you are a far better painter than a poet, Boneman.....!

Yes...I`m in the land of the living....as they say...

I`LL BE BACK...........!!!

boneman said...

everytime y'post a comment, I come flyin' back here...

yer jus' teasin' us, aren'tcha?
Can't wait fer ya t'get yer puter back'n'runnin'

(ta)

Zeppellina said...

I get a new PC in 2 weeks, Boneman, then just need to get back on line as fast as I can manage.

I also have a young cousin from abroad coming to stay with me for a while...lots of things going on, but I will be back soon.

boneman said...

I went ahead and, as suggested, put a lil pussy into the picture.

boneman said...

Cruised by yer blog, dropt over t'the other site lookin' fer info on, er, something.
Found it.
Thanx!
And, in the course of lookin' found this....

There is a factory in Northern Minnesota that makes the Tickle Me Elmo toys. The toy laughs when you tickle it under the arms. Lena is hired at The Tickle Me Elmo factory and she reports for her first day promptly at 8:00 AM.
The next day at 8:45 AM there is a knock at the Personnel Manager's door. The Foreman throws open the door and begins to rant about the new employee. He complains that she is incredibly slow and the whole line is backing up, putting the entire production line behind schedule.
The Personnel Manager decides he should see this for himself, so the 2 men march down to the factory floor. When they get there the line is so backed up that there are Tickle Me Elmo's all over the factory floor and they're really beginning to pile up.
At the end of the line stands Lena surrounded by mountains of Tickle Me Elmo's. She has a roll of plush red fabric and a huge bag of small marbles.
The 2 men watch in amazement as she cuts a little piece of fabric, wraps it around two marbles and begins to carefully sew the little package between Elmo's legs.
The Personnel Manager bursts into laughter. After several minutes of hysterics he pulls himself together and approaches Lena. "I'm sorry," he says to her, barely able to keep a straight face, "but I think you misunderstood the instructions I gave you yesterday..."
"Your job is to give Elmo
two test tickles."

boneman said...

Zeppellina, sweet Zeppellina

Or was that too personal of information...was it unkind?

No, I jest a bit, a giggle never
hurt a living soul at all
Just wonderin' how yer doin'

Zeppellina said...

It`s all Greek to me, Boneman....

Will comtact you soon, I promise...!

boneman said...

I see now that this is a self portrait, girl.
But, never the mind.
Start anew and yer wings'll grow back right away.

Shake and shake the ketchup bottle.
First none'll come out then a lot'll)
